Importing the spices and flavors of the Caribbean to the heart of Harrisburg, What's Cooking's chefs pack their carryout menu with authentic Jamaican entrees. Pieces of white or dark jerk chicken marinate in a blend of thyme, habanero peppers and spices before hitting the grill, and thick slices of portobello mushrooms mix with vidalia onions and balsamic vinaigrette for a veggie alternative to hunting down a wild steak. Two sides accompany each entree, from rice and peas to baked mac 'n' cheese. For dessert, What's Cooking bakes portions of pineapple upside-down cake and rolls out slices of red velvet cake to herald the arrival of transplants from Candy Land. As flexible as they are dexterous, What's Cooking's chefs can, with advance notice, accommodate any meal to suit dietary restrictions.
